Hundred fires It is known as the Pearl of the South, the second most important port in Cuba and the capital of the province of the same name. Its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005. Its bay, at the bottom of where it is located, is one of the most beautiful in the country, apart from that of Havana.
On this trip we didn't have any previous information of places to stay. The road and improvisation would take us to what would finally be our destinations, all of them (except in Havana and Cayo Levisa) in private homes of Cubans themselves, which would not give a vision much closer to the life of the country. Here in Cienfuegos we would end up in Claudio and Iliana House.
We will therefore go to “GUIDED VISIT” of the accommodation With our own impressions of the place.
We arrived in Cienfuegos already in the afternoon. The reception was exquisite by Iliana (Claudio, who had an operation - he is a cardiologist - we did not see him in our stay). He kindly showed us the room and explained everything we could do in the city. The price was barely 25 CUC For the stay both.
The Location It is 3 or 4 blocks into the center of Cienfuegos, away from the area of the bay that is the most "enjoyment" but in which you get in just 10 minutes.
The room It was great, with two big beds, mirror, small closets and enough lighting.
He bathIt was also spacious as well as equipped with all the basic needs
Both room and bathroom, as well as the rest of the house's facilities, were perfectly equipped and in perfect condition. cleaning.
Right next to the bedroom, in addition to living the family (but absolutely defined to have our privacy), there is a large kitchen where we could enjoy the breakfast (for only 4 CUC each). What to say? Like all of Cuban private homes, spacious and varied.
A major of the services offered, Iliana meets a person who takes care of the car at night (there is planted all night) for 2 CUC. It is necessary? We think not, but if we can give something to these people, we are delighted.
Juve's reflections: "House of Claudio and Iliana, in Cienfuegos, here I am not going to expand much. Come, cenari, sonnari. We arrived, had dinner and slept hahahahaha. We were crushed, although Isaac tells me that I did not wake him up and that “we are going to sleep a little after dinner to leave later” was a dirty trick lol. I still remember how the very fox snored when the alarm clock rang hahahaha. The stay was very pleasant, Claudio was a cardiologist, if I remember correctly. He and his family treated us wonderfully."
The we would recommend? Absolutely yes. It is recommended by CHAVETAS.ES
